The new SciVerse platform combines Scopus, ScienceDirect, and web content from Scirus. It also includes the new SciVerse Hub. For more information about SciVerse, please visit www.acceleratescience.com.
“Combining familiar resources with new efficiencies, SciVerse also enables interoperability among ScienceDirect, Scopus and the new SciVerse Hub beta. For example, ScienceDirect users who also subscribe to Scopus will now be able to access key author information without leaving the article, and link directly into comprehensive lists of all an author’s documents and citations in Scopus.
SciVerse Hub beta will include three search and discovery applications at launch:
Methods section search application – allows researchers to search only the methodology and protocol sections of full-text articles.
Matching Sentences application – returns search results with the query words highlighted in the full sentence where they appear.
Prolific Authors application – prominently displays the most prolific authors for each search result.
The initial applications offer an example of the possible solutions that can be built using content APIs and were developed by NextBio, a provider of a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform for life sciences researchers which includes ontology-based semantic tools. Elsevier began collaborating with NextBio in 2009.”
